Gloria Jean Dugan

May 10, 1947June 15, 2020

A private memorial service for Gloria Jean Dugan, 73, will be held at 3:00 pm Saturday, June 20, 2020, at St. Jacob’s Lutheran Church. Gloria was born May 10, 1947, in Alexandria, VA, and went home to God June 15, 2020. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Harold. She was the daughter of the late William Richard Heflin and Isabel Constance Heflin. Even though she held many professional jobs, including driving a school bus for Prince William County Schools (VA), her primary focus was keeping a household, loving her husband, raising her children, spending time with her siblings, worshipping at church, and most importantly, being the best Grandma on the planet! She was adventurous, free-spirited and full of life. She overcame many challenges in her life, never letting anything or anyone stop her from living life to its fullest. She gave the love of God to everyone she met and welcomed them with open arms full of warmth and acceptance. To Gloria nothing and no one had to be perfect. She really captured the essence of forgiveness and giving from the heart.

Gloria is survived by her sons, Christopher Dugan (Rebecca), William Dugan (Michele); daughters, Jamie Souther (Justin), Heather Haislip (TJ); brothers, James Heflin (Valerie), Thomas Heflin; sister, Janet Sandlin; half brothers, Michael Wayne Heflin and Anthony Heflin, and her absolute Earth Angels - her 13 grandchildren and great grand child.

Caughman-Harman Funeral Home, Chapin Chapel, is assisting with the arrangements. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, services will be live streamed and may be viewed on Caughman-Harman Funeral Home, Chapin Chapel’s Facebook page starting at 2:55 p.m. on the day of the service.

Mama Dugan,
Thanks for always treating me like one of your own. I am a better Christian, man, friend, husband and human being because of you and your family. Every time I cross a set of railroad tracks I always look twice because of your words. I was truly blessed to have been able to be a part of your life. I look forward to seeing you again in Heaven. Until then, Your son Timmy

Aunt Gloria,

You are truly missed. You have been a part of my life since the day I was born. You were always there for me. You had such a free spirit and a go, go, go attitude. I remember a little of when we lived in Texas with you and Uncle Harold (the bugs (EWWW)). I remember our trip to Disney World. I remember all of the birthday/graduation parties that you attended for myself and my children. You showed us love always. We love you Aunt Gloria. Rest easy.

Love Billy, Michelle, Nicholas, Dani, Chris, Nicholas, Joey and Liam

My sweet cousin I will always have you in my heart we
had fun times when we were together and when we were young
Your kindness laughter and strength were to be admired.
It was so good seeing you and Janet when the two of you stopped by I can still hear your laughter and feel your hug as you got ready to leave not knowing what was to come
You are now an angel with our father in heaven and looking
down I will miss you but I will always love you and carry you in my heart always

Gloria, my Best Friend Forever! Once in a lifetime does God gives you this opportunity to have such a friendship which started many years ago so knowing that you can just imagine that the memories were endless! Gloria would often say let's go - you know me spare of the moment and off to another amazing adventure all her style. We did have our own style and that consisted of talking on the telephone for hours and watching television shows at the same time! Knowing each other so well, often words were not needed to express our feelings whether it brought tears to our eyes or a topic of disagreement we got through it in a loving way! We were there for each other no matter what the circumstances presented but the most important part was we had a strong bond that was untouched . I love her Forever!

My dear sweet Jamie and family,
Please know our thoughts and prayers are with each of you during this difficult time. I pray for God's peace that surpasses all understanding. I pray for comfort knowing that your sweet Mama has a new glorified body and is walking the streets of gold!
Love to each of you,
Aunt Darla, Uncle Mike and Pa

Already missing you Momma Dugan. So full of energy, love, and laughter. A fantastic mom, grandma, and wife. My heart is broken for those you leave behind but I take comfort in knowing you are reunited with Pappa Dugan. Blessed are those of us whose lives you've touched.

Mrs. Dugan was an inspiration and role model for her faith and sweet nature. She always looked for the good in everyone and stayed positive even during struggles. I grew up with her youngest daughter, Heather and see how she passed down great senses of humor to her children! Mrs. Dugan and Heather helped chaperone for my daughter's slumber party one year. What fun we had with twelve little girls! Great memories and laughs. This lady got it right! RIP Miss Gloria.

I'm so overcome with emotion at the loss of my Aunt Gloria. However, I remember vividly the great person and wife she was to my uncle Harold, wonderful mother to her children, and aunt she was to me, and that brings a smile to my face. Divorce can be a terrible thing that separates families. This makes things so much harder for me because as a young child, I always had such a great time visiting my Aunt Gloria, Uncle Harold, and my cousins Chris, William, Jamie and Heather. These wonderful memories have remained, and will forever remain with me. Throughout the years we grew separated and out of touch, but through social media we've reconnected. My heart is heavy right now, but I know that my Aunt and Uncle are sitting in heaven right now at peace. My condolences to everyone who's life this great woman touched. I will miss you dearly Aunt Gloria..
